Re: Transcriptions of Simple Melodies

Dear Brandon

The simple melodies developed by Moore and Rosen (1979)
might be of interest.  There are 10 tunes ('Twinkle Twinkle
Little Star', 'Yankee Doodle', etc) made out of 16 equal-duration
notes.   We published the transcriptions in Akeroyd Moore and Moore,
2001, Table 1

Moore, B.C.J. and Rosen, S.M. (1979). “Melody recognition with reduced pitch and interval information,” Q. J. Exp. Psychol., 31, 229-249.

Akeroyd MA, Moore BCJ, and Moore GA (2001). “Melody recognition using three types of dichotic-pitch stimulus”, J. Acoust. Soc. Am., 110 (3), 1498-1504
